I'd say high since it is night and I'm pairing with velvet and silk.

They seem more appropriate to the day, to me, but not inappropriate for the evening in dark colours.

I know, not really classic menswear material.

Your shirt may be too long, fit untucked, if that's what we are taking about. If we are taking about at/below the collar, is the collar stiff? I think the is a set spot between so light it is flimsy, and so heavy out weighs itself down. I've anastasia did it is pretty much related to thickness of the masterial. I assume you're pressing it fresh. If that fails, starch becomes your friend.

How does it fit in the body? I agree that, if too loose, it has more room to move around, be pulled when you move your arms. Once it splays, game over in my experience; you won't fix it that night..

I either agree completely, or wool find you, altogether, too shiny.

Tried on a bunch of stuff tonight and decided to wear some out for science.

Ended up wearing black Chelsea boots, black jeans, a black twill vest, a pink shirt with red accent stitching and MoP buttons, and a black velvet blazer with a pink silk poof in the pocket.

So far I've gotten some odd looks in Target when I went to get some Oxy-clean.
